Why I Own “Davenport Arabians”

A lovely article by blogger Edouard Al-Dahdah (who owns Wisteria CF, shown at left):

I was involved in translating the hujaj (Arabic certification documents) of Al Khamsa Foundation Horses from the original Arabic to English, for the reference book Al Khamsa Arabians III, and as such was given temporary access to copies of a lot of original hujaj. This is when it dawned on me that the Arabians known as Davenport Arabian horses (to simplify, the exclusive descendants of the horses imported from the Arabian desert by Homer Davenport in 1906) were one of only two groups of Al Khamsa horses whose desert-bred ancestors were documented by way of these hujaj.
